Planting potatoes is hard work. So is spreading mulch. Josh did the mulching, I did the potato-trench digging. We discovered the Free Mulch pile at the county recycling center, and took advantage of it. After all the work Saturday, we were sore all day Sunday and did very little. Besides, it was raining- a really good reason to stay inside. We really need to mow the lawn, but the rain is forecast through tomorrow. But! The forecast says it will be 77 Friday! Can it be true?

Yeah! I'm excited about the strawberry patch. I'll put on their old clothes and Kevin and Kaden can come pick strawberries this summer! What memories I have of picking strawberries with my mom.

Heather- well, maybe not THIS summer. The plants are very little, and I'm not supposed to let them grow berries, at least at the beginning of the summer, so they can get more established. If I treat them well this year, they should last for many more.
